The CW has cancelled its well-regarded “Superman & Lois” with the show’s upcoming ten-episode fourth season to be its last.
Said fourth season is famously set to undergo a major overhaul as it suffers from significant budget cuts that will see much of the supporting cast reduced to guest spots whilst a chunk of the writing staff is also gone.
Only Michael Cudlitz’s Lex Luthor and the core family – Tyler Hoechlin as Clark, Bitsie Tulloch as Lois, Alex Garfin as Jordan and Michael Bishop as Jonathan – are returning as regulars.
CW president Brad Schwartz says in a statement:
“We are grateful for the years of hard work and graceful storytelling from the show’s writers, producers, actors and crew, as well as our terrific partners at Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions.
As Superman embarks on his final flight, the team is leaving us with an absolutely epic 10-episode must-watch-every-minute farewell to one of the most legendary CW families ever.”
The show’s end also marks the end of DC on The CW, a network that spent much of the past decade powered by shows based on DC Comics properties beginning with the launch of “Arrow” in 2012.
